Should I wait for the IRS to bill me?

IMAO, the IRS should sue E*trade for getting your revised 1099-DIV out so late. And then mailing it in some way that it takes about two weeks to get to you. From where did they mail it? Tasmania?

Normally, they should have that stuff done by the end of January. Dividends are not so difficult that they need revisions, unlike some other 1099s. I believe they got a reprieve this year of about 2 weeks, but not this long.
